Vistabel is the new name for Botox that is specifically licensed for cosmetic purposes. It is a purified protein that is injected in tiny amounts into specific overactive muscle groups generally in the upper face that cause wrinkles to appear. It temporarily blocks nerve impulses which leads to a more rejuvenated and relaxed appearance which lasts around 3 to 6 months. It can be used to give a brow lift, soften the platysmal bands in the neck and it can even stop excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Treatment is very safe and effective in the hands of a highly trained, experienced medical practitioner. Last year in the UK over 50 000 vials were used for cosmetic purposes. Occasional swelling and bruising can occur at injection sites but settles very quickly. A very rare side effect can involve a drooping of the eyelid which can be treated with prescription eye drops. This tends to happen with poor injection techniques. At ‘MBE’ our training is of a very high standard.
Firstly a consultation must take place to determine suitability for treatment, assess medical history, prescribe and discuss treatment options and expected results. The overactive muscles are injected with a very fine needle. The actual treatment only takes about 15 minutes. It will start to take effect after 2-5 days and may take up to two weeks to fully develop. An appointment will be made to review the treatment after two weeks.
